CONSTITUTION 

OP  THE 

PENNSYLVANIA    SOCIETY 

FOB 

PROMOTIiNG  THE  ABOLITION  OF  SLAVERY,  &c. 

As  revised  and  adopted  Ninth  mo..  {September,}  29th,  1859. 


It  having  pleased  the  Creator  of  the  world  to  make  of  one  flesh 
all  the  children  of  men — it  becomes  them  to  consult  and  promote  each 
other's  happiness,  as  members  of  the  same  family,  however  diversified 
they  may  be,  by  color,  situation,  religion  or  different  states  of  society. 
It  is  more  especially  the  duty  of  those  persons  who  profess  to  maintain 
for  themselves  the  rights  of  human  nature,  and  who  acknowledge  the 
obligations  of  Christianity,  to  use  such  means  as  are  in  their  power, 
to  extend  the  blessings  of  freedom  to  every  part  of  the  human  race : 
and  in  a  more  particular  manner,  to  such  of  their  fellow  creatures  as 
are  entitled  to  freedom  by  the  laws  and  constitutions  of  any  of  the 
United  States,  and  who,  notwithstanding,  are  detained  in  bondage  by 
fraud  or  violence.  From  a  full  conviction  of  the  truth  and  obligation 
of  these  principles — from  a  desire  to  diffuse  them,  wherever  the  miseries 
and  vices  of  slavery  exist,  and  in  humble  confidence  of  the  favor  and 
support  of  the  Father  of  Mankind,  the  subscribers  have  associated 
themselves  under  the  title  of  the  "  Pennsylvania  Society  for  promoting 
the  Abolition  of  Slavery,  and  the  Relief  of  Free  Negroes  unlawfully 
held  in  Bondage,  and  for  improving  the  condition  of  the  African 
Race." 

For  effecting  these  purposes,  they  have  adopted  the  following  con- 
stitution : 

I.  The  officers  of  this  Society  shall  consist  of  a  president,  two  vice- 
presidents,  two  secretaries,  a  treasurer,  a  librarian  and  twelve  coun- 
sellors, viz.  four  from  the  city  of  Philadelphia,  and  the  remaining 
eight  from  such  other  places  as  the  Society  may  from  time  to  time  de- 
termine. A  board  of  education  of  thirteen,  an  acting  committee  of 
seven,  and  a  committee  on  property,  of  three  members,  all  of  whom 


11 

«?hall  be  chosen  annually  by  ballot,  oa  the  last  Fifth-day  calletl  Thurs- 
day, in  the  month  called  December. 

II.  The  president,  or  in  his  absence  one  of  the  vice-presidents,  shall 
preside  in  all  the  meetings,  and  subscribe  all  the  public  acts  of  the 
Society.  The  president,  or  in  his  absence,  either  of  the  vice-presidents, 
shall  moreover  have  the  power  of  calling  a  special  meeting  of  the 
Society  whenever  he  shall  judge  proper.  A  special  meeting  shall  like- 
wise be  called  at  any  time,  when  six  members  of  the  Society  shall  con- 
cur in  requesting  it. 

III.  The  secretaries  shall  keep  records  of  the  proceedings  of  the 
Society,  and  shall  correspond  with  such  persons,  and  societies,  as  may 
be  judge<I  necessary  to  promote  the  views  and  objects  of  the  institu- 
tion. 

IV.  The  treasurer  shall  keep  all  the  monies  and  securities  belong- 
ing to  the  Society,  and  shall  pay  all  orders  signed  by  the  president  or 
one  of  the  vice-presidents,  and  countersigned  by  one  of  the  secretaries, 
and  abio  such  orders  aa  are  referred  to  in  Articles  VII  and  VIII,  which 
orders  shall  be  his  vouchers  for  his  expenditures. 

He  shall  have  charge  of  the  corporate  seal,  and  affix  the  same  when 
required  by  the  Society.  He  shall  report  quarterly  the  balance  in  the 
treasury,  to  the  credit  of  each  account,  and  annually  render  a  full 
statement  of  his  receipts  and  expenditures.  He  shall,  before  entering 
upon  his  office,  give  a  bond  of  not  less  than  eight  hundred  dollars,  for 
the  faithful  discharge  of  his  duties. 

V.  The  librarian  shall  have  charge  of  and  keep  a  catalogue  of  the 
books  and  papers  of  the  corporation,  and  see  that  they  are  preserved 
from  loss  or  damage.  He  shall  keep  a  record  of  all  papers  or  books 
loaned,  requiring  the  same  to  be  returned  to  the  library  within  one 
month.  -^— 

VI.  The  business  of  the  counsellors  shall  be  to  explain  the  laws 
and  constitutions  of  the  States,  which  relate  to  the  emancipation  of 
slaves,  and  to  urge  their  claims  to  freedom,  before  such  persons  or 
courts  as  are  authorized  to  decide  upon  them. 

VII.  The  board  of  education  shall  superintend  the  schools  establish- 
ed by  the  Society,  and  shall  have  the  management  of  the  funds  appro- 
priated to  educational  purposes.  They  shall  also  consider,  suggest  and 
and  supervise  measures  for  the  improvement  of  the  condition  of  the 
colored  people,  and  from  time  to  time  prepare,  and  with  the  consent  of 
the  Society  publish  statistics  and  reports  thereon. 

Five  members  shall  constitute  a  quorum  to  transact  the  general  con- 
cerns of  the  board.     All  orders,  drawn  by  their  chairman,  and  attested 


12 

by  their  secretary,  shall  be  paid  by  the  treasurer  of  the  Society.     They 
.shall  keep  regular  minutes  of  their  proceedings,  and  produce  them  at 
every  stated  meeting  of  the  society. 

VIII.  The  acting  committee  shall  transact  such  business  as  shall 
occur  in  the  recess  of  the  Society,  and  report  the  same  at  each  quar- 
terly meeting.  They  shall  have  a  right,  with  the  concurrence  of  the 
president  or  one  of  the  vice-presidents,  to  draw  upon  the  treasurer  for 
such  sums  of  money  as  shall  be  necessary  to  carry  on  the  business  of 
their  appointment;  and  be  authorized  to  employ  a  clerk  to  transcribe 
their  minutes  into  a  book  provided  for  the  purpose.  Four  of  them 
shall  be  a  quorum. 

IX.  The  committee  on  property  shall  have  supervision  over  the 
real  estate  of  the  Society,  and  direct  all  necessary  repairs. 

X.  No  person  shall  be  admitted  to  membership  who  has  not  been 
proposed  at  a  previous  meeting  of  the  Society,  nor  shall  an  election  take 
place  in  less  than  one  month  after  the  time  of  his  being  proposed. 
The  concurrence  by  ballot  of  two-thirds  of  the  members  present  at  a 
stated  meeting  shall  be  necessary  for  the  admission  of  a  member. 

Foreigners,  or  persons  who  do  not  reside  in  the  city  of  Philadelphia, 
may  be  elected  corresponding  members  of  the  Society,  without  being 
subject  to  an  annual  payment,  and  ?;hall  be  admitted  to  the  meetings 
of  the  Society  during  their  residence  in  the  city. 

XI.  Every  member  upon  his  admission,  shall  subscribe  the 
constitution  of  the  Society,  and  contribute  one  dollar  annually, 
towards  defraying  its  contingent  expenses  :  (Provided,  that  any  mem- 
ber paying  at  one  time  the  sum  of  thirty  dollars  or  upwards,  shall  be 
exempt  from  all  future  annual  contributions.)  If  he  neglects  to  pay 
the  same  for  more  than  two  years,  he  shall,  upon  due  notice  being  given 
him  of  his  delinquency,  cease  to  be  a  member. 

XII.  The  Society  .^hall  meet  on  the  last  Fifth-day  called  Thursday, 
in  the  months  called  March,  June,  September  and  December,  at  such 
place  as  shall  be  agreed  to  by  a  majority  of  the  Society. 

XIII.  No  person  holding  a  slave  shall  be  admitted  a  member  of  this 
Society. 

XIV.  No  By-law  or  alteration  of  this  constitution  shall  be  made, 
without  being  proposed  at  a  previous  meeting.  All  questions  shall 
be  decided,  where  there  is  a  division,  by  a  majority  of  votes.  In 
those  cases  where  the  Society  is  equally  divided,  the  presiding  officer 
shall  have  a  casting  vote.
